I've been conducting the Philharmonia since I was 8 or 9 years old - through their recordings! It was the very first orchestra I ever heard.Gustavo Dudamel
The Philharmonia believes that you don't need to be seated in a concert hall to have a special classical music experience. Audiences can engage with the Orchestra through its unique interactive music education website, The Sound Exchange, with content accessed by over half a million people per year. Launched in 2009/10, RE:RITE: Be the Orchestra is one of the most innovative and widely heralded projects in the musical world, attempting to bring people inside the world of the Philharmonia Orchestra through a unique installation of film and video recordings.
